Maxi skirt is one of those items you don't wear a lot, but always at the right time. In the summer it hides you from the heat and in winter keeps you comfortable and warm like a cosy blanket. With the right choice of length and style it will suit any woman.
The main rule is - the simpler the better. If you are choosing a printed, flashy skirt, team it up with plain blouse or t-shirt and neutral accessories. If you prefer something bright on the top, wear a simple skirt. Otherwise you will look like a travelling gypsy or punk rock fan from the 90s (unless it's your intention).
